(p.1) Introduction
How to Do Things with History

This introduction begins by exploring the methodological advances for historiography to be reaped from the oeuvre of Paul Cartledge. The focus is on putting thought and practice in relation to each other; linking ideas, discourse and concepts to structure, status, and hierarchy; deploying cross-context comparisons to bring to light the dynamic interaction between culture and power; and supplying the tools of pragmatism that enable us to see beliefs in action. The remainder of the introduction supplies brief summaries of each of the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   introduction, Cartledge, historicism, relativism, comparativism, Marxism, political thought, political thinking, discourse, culture, multi-disciplinarity
